    Odd WCA stats/ Stats request Thread

    Thanks so much guys that's the kind of stuff I was looking for. Erik still competing has me feeling glad that there are still some of us hanging in there that still remember the type b with a rubiks core cube days. Ah, all names I recognize and respect. Feels good to be able to identify...

    Odd WCA stats/ Stats request Thread

    Thanks guys that's actually pretty interesting information I didn't know about before. I wonder when age group records will be incorporated into WCA? I know most of you are 7-15 years old so it's not really a topic of conversation but I think 30-39 and 40-49 should be age groups. Btw for the...

    What was your first SpeedCube?

    It was called a DIY cube from Ebay. Maybe what later became known as "Type A"

    Am I fast or is my cube fast?

    God I remember back in the day when we had to build our own "DIY" cubes that came in pieces in ziplock bags from an Ebay seller in China. I was getting sub 15 off of the crappiest cubes looking back. I'm talking 2007. But we thought those were good cubes then... yeah, cube technology has...

    OLS - Oriented Last Slot (Game Changer) and OCPLS

    By TOLS you mean TSLE right? And yes, you can do TTLL with this. It would narrow down the TSLE part to the 7 cross OLLs. I use TTLL for the sune cases, rather TT-COLL then ELL

    OLS - Oriented Last Slot (Game Changer) and OCPLS

    I created this method maybe 4 years ago now and I just didn't want people to just sleep on it because it's really frickin awesome in terms of ZZ add ons and even useful to know for regular CFOP as kind of a VLS type add on. I have a more well explained (perhaps too explained) version of this...

    [WR] Feliks Zemdegs - 5.80 3x3 Average

    Seriously. It's crazy to think someday soon we might see a podium that's sub-18. A sub 5 average is a matter of time and motivation. It seems like motivation to keep breaking records is high these days. Also, a 3 second gap in average between 1st and second. Feliks could've had a counting 15.25...

    OLS - Oriented Last Slot (Game Changer) and OCPLS

    There are many different ways to understand it, but if you're trying to understand it from an MGLS perspective, it's like doing CLS with permutation of the corners, hence (O)C(P)LS. And yes this CLS was the bridge into this as explained in the OP. In fact, you can use CLS with this Oriented Last...

    OLS - Oriented Last Slot (Game Changer) and OCPLS

    Ah, yeah, I will have to change the name most likely. I forgot it describes LS+OLL methods like VLS and HLS. It's not what you described, the point is to build the pseudo last slot while block building, on the fly. Sometimes you'll notice it happens on accident any way. The point would be to...

    OLS - Oriented Last Slot (Game Changer) and OCPLS

    Hello Speedsolving Community, This has been an idea I've been putting off sharing for over a year now. I've finally generated the algs that will allow me to feel comfortable making a post about this method (technique, really) I've been inspired by the creation of ZZ-CT to come up with. Now...
